Humane Society of Pasco County, Inc.


Who We Are

The Humane Society of Pasco County Inc., is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1982. A small group of volunteers worked tirelessly to clear the property in rural West Pasco County Florida. Our cats and new puppies live in manufactured home that has undergone many renovations over the years. We run a bright, friendly place where the animals get a lot of love and attention. We also have a large fenced area with mature trees for the dogs. Each dog has an oversized kennel and gets to run and play daily. We have a group of dedicated volunteers to do many shelter jobs. Of course, the best job is playing with the animals! We are in the process of building a hurricane safe shelter and planning a new building with more space and amenities for the animals.

Your donations are the only thing that keeps us going and your contributions will help make our dream of building a larger shelter a reality. Please keep us in mind when doing your estate planning. We can help with adding the Humane Society of Pasco to your bequests. Many people think that the National Humane Societies provide funds for all Humane Societies. This is not the case. We receive no money from the national Humane Societies or any Government Agency. This is true with most shelters. Please remember to donate to your local animal shelter. Generally, they need the money much more than the national associations do. Our only source of funding is from your donations. Please visit our donations page if you wish to make a donation with your credit card. Checks should be mailed directly to the shelter. Our mailing address is located at the bottom of this page.

Come see our new look!

We have made some wonderful improvements over the past few months. Concrete walkways, new sod, paint, new floors and cages have all made our shelter look terrific. You will agree that the animals have a nice place to call home while awaiting their "forever" homes.

If you haven't done so already, please visit our new website. It's full of important information that you will tell you more about the Humane Society of Pasco County.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption fees are based on each animal's age, breed, and whether the animal has been spayed or neutered. All animals are current with their shots. Cat adoption fees are normally $35 to $45. Dog adoption fees are normally $45 to $100. We try to make sure all of our animals are neutered before being adopted. This isn't always possible however since we don't have a vet on staff. If the pet is not neutered there is a rebate available when the animal has been fixed. All animals adopted from our shelter must be neutered. Our goal is to find good forever homes for our animals!
